WHEN TO VISIT THE PARK
Each season is surprising and has its own characteristics. Spring is full of flowers: from crocuses to tulips, from daffodils to hyacinths, peonies, roses, but not only! The green expanses will be ideal for recovering from the cold of winter. In the summer season you will find the wonderful aquatic blooms such as water lilies and lotus flowers, and then the hydrangeas, dahlias, hemerocallis, tagetes, and you can enjoy the shade of the ancient trees. Autumn in the Park is special thanks to its explosion of colors given by the foliage of Japanese maples and ginkgo biloba trees and by the numerous asters, canna indica and annual plants.
The extraordinary Tulipmania season at the Park is from the second part of March through to the last week of April. We remind you that, as nature demands, the year's weather conditions may significantly affect the flowering periods.
